Polestar - the fastest-growing car brand in the UK

Polestar’s rapid growth in the UK has been phenomenal with sales surging by over 174% compared to the same period, Jan – Jul, 2022.

Polestar announced Wednesday it has produced 150,000 battery-electric vehicles since the company began. Of those 150,000 cars more than 20,000 are now on UK roads -making it the fastest growing car brand in the UK.

Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO, said: “The upgraded Polestar 2 is the best version to date. With improved software, better quality, longer range and faster charging, it is the basis from which we continue to grow our business.”

The car manufacturer lifted the veil on the 2024 model year Polestar 2 in January this year. Visually changes start at the front where Polestar has ditched the faux gloss black grille in favour of a body-coloured grille that houses most of the ADAS sensors. Polestar’s designers have also had some fun crafting new wheels for the EV.

Under the bonnet the most significant alterations have been made. For starters, it gets a new 82 kWh battery pack from CATL that supports 205 kW DC fast charging and boosts the range of the single-motor variant to an impressive 395 miles (635 km) and the dual-motor version to 368 miles (592 km). A key change made to the Polestar 2 is that single-motor models are now rear-wheel drive instead of front-wheel drive and sport a new electric motor with 295 hp and 361 lb-ft (490 Nm), significant gains of 67 hp and 118 lb-ft (160 Nm) over the older front-wheel drive model.
